- Hantro today announced the signing of a license agreement with Magic Pixel Inc. of Taiwan. The agreement, which covers multi-format HW IP designs, will see Hantro’s leading edge technology integrated inside the application processors of Magic Pixel, targeting mobile phones and other handheld devices.
